Land grant

We were pleased to receive news from Cr Kathy Duff that the land for the shed (adjacent to the Railway shed) will be discussed at the next council portfolio meeting early May. Since Kathy is the councillor responsible for Parks, we are hopeful that the grant will be made in short order. Once the grant is made we will be able to incorporate and really start work on establishing our workshop space.
